The Bible Study group of Our Lady of Good Help and St. Theresa’s parishes meets on the third Thursday of the month at 7:00pm in the St. Theresa’s church hall. We normally adjourn for the summer months of June, July and August. The discussion questions for each evening are sent out on the preceding Sunday via email to our email list.
The evening is spent in a group discussion of each question, exploring various commentaries and relating personal experiences and knowledge. This enables participation by any level of Biblical interest from novice to advanced. No one is forced to participate and each one is free to join in or ask any questions.
Many people sign up on the list for the questions even though they may be unable to attend the session. We even have one participant in the State of Washington!
Over the past few years we have studied the Gospel of Luke, the Book of Revelation, Genesis, Acts of the Apostles, St. Paul’s Letter to the Romans and the Book of Psalms. We are currently studying the Gospel of Mark and are debating which book we will tackle next.
Everyone is welcome and we encourage our participants to bring a guest, even if they just want to observe and see how we learn. Our attendance fluctuates from five or six to over twenty five.
For more information, or to be added to the email list, send an email to Deacon Rick Lapierre at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not have access to email call the Parish Office at (401) 568-8280 and we will make arrangements to get the questions to you.
Greetings and salutations! The Our Lady of Good Help/St. Theresa's Bible Study group will meet this Thursday (12/19/2018) at 7:00pm in the St. Theresa's Church Hall to continue our study of Mark's gospel. The discussion questions are attached. As is our tradition we will then adjourn for some Christmas cheer so everyone is invited to bring something we can share with each other as we prepare for the momentous commemoration of Jesus' coming into the world. As always, anyone and everyone is invited to join us as we study the Word of God. I'm looking forward to this week's event. As we prepare to conclude our study of Mark's gospel I would ask you to think about which Book of the Bible you would like us to tackle next. God bless you and your families as we continue our Advent preparations.
